Into the Outdoors

Can’t seem to pull your kids away from all those screens? Are they glued to the TV, a laptop, their favorite video game? Try turning the gadgets off and getting your kids tuned-in to the outdoors instead. Use A Stick is an Excellent Thing: Poems Celebrating Outdoor Play for inspiration. This book of poetry celebrates classic childhood activities such as playing in the sprinkler, riding a skateboard, and running races across the yard.  Remember when?
 
Skateboard races,
pigeon chases,
running bases.
Backyard dashes,
racecar crashes,
puddle splashes.
Everything’s a blast
when you do it really fast!
